Actor Akshay Kumar playing the role of a transgender in the film Laxmi Bomb and he said that “(My role was) mentally intensive, kinda tough and the one I have never experienced before. The credit goes to the director of the film, Raghava Lawrence. He introduced me to a version of myself even I didn’t know existed. This character is unlike any other character I have played. I wanted to portray the character with full honesty, without offending any community which is why I took several retakes while shooting. Even after doing 150 films, I was excited to be on set, pushing boundaries and learning more about myself. This film taught me to be more understanding of gender equality. Be anything you want to be but just don’t be ignorant. Kindness is the key.”
As actress Alia Bhatt also talks about her film Sadak-2 by promoting the poster of the film which features a road and Mount Kailash. She said, “It is like a homecoming. The emotion is on another level” As she is missing her team of the movies which is more than just a film to her. Actress also read the message from her father Mahesh Bhatt and that is, “Mount Kailash, the ageless mountain, has the footprints of gods and sages. It is the abode of the god of all gods, Lord Shiva. So do we really need anything else or actors in that sacred space? Since the beginning of time humanity found its shelter in Kailash. This is a place where all search ends. Sadak 2 is the road to love.”
